Issues With Confirmation Code (No Email, Code Not Working, Etc)

Description:

  • Issues occur when you try to create and/or link a Nintendo Account with Nintendo Switch using the email and 5-digit confirmation code. (Email never arrived, expired URL, confirmation code is blank or not working.)

Important:

This process is optional. You can also link your Nintendo Account by entering your Nintendo Account sign-in information on your Nintendo Switch console.

Additional Information:

When creating a new Nintendo Account to link to a Nintendo Switch console, you will be given the option to use a 5-digit confirmation code to complete the process.

What to Do:

  • If you are having issues with the email or the confirmation code, you can use the standard steps for creating / linking a Nintendo Account to a new user account or existing user account.
    • This method allows you to link your Nintendo Account using your Nintendo Account sign-in information; the confirmation code is not required.
